    However, Theseus primarily gained fame as the heroic founder and defender of Athens.

The story of Theseus and the Minotaur also involves a relationship with a woman.   the theme of the story is when theseus killed the minotaur which i think was a weird way cuz he didnt really do anything exept let him run into a wall then stabbed him while he was down. anyways the theme of the story is wen theseus killed the minotaur then said he wood marry ariadne and adandonned her on the island of naxos.
